I never really understood why so many people have children and can't afford the things they need. Now, I am not talking about if a person gets ill or laid off and can't work but I am talking about people who KNOW they can't afford a child but have one anyways, and heck have two three or more!

Even thought we don't ever want children DH and I both agree we would not have them right now even if we really wanted one because we simply couldn't afford to right now.

It just seems like such common sense to me.

Where do you get the 6 Million figure from? According to Guttmacher

~~~How many abortions occur in the United States?

In 2003, 1.29 million abortions were performed in the United States. From 1973 through 2003, more than 43 million legal abortions occurred in the United States. (25)~~~

Could you please point out where she said that she couldn't afford crayons from the link that you provided?

I'm not sure what you mean - that the school system can't afford crayons?


Also, not sure what you mean about 6 million.
